TEHRAN, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- Five members of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) were killed in a clash with " terrorist" groups in Iran's western Kurdistan province on Thursday evening, semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

In the clash erupted in one of the villages of Baneh town in the province, two other members of the IRGC's Beit al-Moqaddas unit in Kurdistan were seriously wounded, the report said.

No more details are available about the incident, said Mehr, adding that the IRGC's senior commanders have held a meeting in Baneh to discuss the issue.
